A Special Edition: Post Halloween Anti-Apocalypse Wrap-Up

Because we couldn’t have another Halloween if there really was an apocalypse . . . .

And my 2015 calendar prophesied there would be another October 31st next year. You can check your calendar, I’ll wait.

A high wind pushed the rain clouds to the east. The sky cleared.

Our yard before the candle lighting.

Our yard before the candle lighting.

The moon waxed above the trees lighting the street. Votive candles flickered in stemless wine glasses half covered with aluminum foil. The first Trick or Treater arriving before we finished setting up the yard.

I'm sure the dog felt better . . . must have been a big meal.

In my excited state, I forgot to take any after photos. But I know they’re out there.

We had 208 Trick or Treaters visit us on Friday night. A new record high—for us. We nearly ran out of candy and glow necklaces.

Another first, the number of people lying down in front of their favorite tombstones taking selfies.

And in the spirit of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, we are already planning for next year.

In a voice very different from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the ghost said, "I'll be back!"

As with any special edition, how about some amazing performance art to wrap up our Halloween extravaganza. If you haven’t seen Lindsey Stirling yet, check out this amazing performance, Master of Tides.

Release the Kraken, Lindsey!

Until next week.

Ciao,

Fannie

    • Thanks Liz. It really help that the weather held. Clearly we don’t have the power to draw them in like the SPAM Museum.

      Speaking of which, I heard it’s moving to a new location in downtown Austen and should re-open in 2016. . .might be a road trip in the making there.
